Federal Response to Wall Street Scrutinized
Virginia voters are split on whether they approve of the steps the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department have taken to deal with the current upheaval on Wall Street, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The poll found 46 percent of residents approve while 42 percent disapprove. But strong opponents outnumber strong supporters by 2 to 1 (21 to 10 percent).
The poll was conducted just as the public was starting to absorb President Bush's proposal for a $700 billion bailout of the financial markets. Republicans were somewhat more likely than Democrats and Independents to support the government's efforts. White voters who graduated from college are also more supportive than those who did not.
